Trivia

This is a sequel in name only as its plot or characters have no bearing on the 1976 film. It was, however, originally intended to be a true sequel, with Burt I. Gordon (director of the 1976 film) returning, but the idea was dropped sometime in pre-production. See more »

Goofs

When Edmund is becoming infected with dog cancer, a crew member can be seen in the lower left-hand corner of the screen operating the pumps that squirt the white goo out of the lumps on Colin Fox's face. See more »

Horrible horror film...
31 August 1998 | by (New Jersey, USA.) – See all my reviews

Food of the Gods II tells the legacy of a group of giant, man-eating rats who infest a college campus. Only a determined scientist (Paul Coufos) and his girlfriend (Lisa Schrage) can stop the monstrosity of a menace.

This Canadian production features poor special effects, some of the worst matte effects seen in years. The acting is below average, and production values only qualify this as a mediocre cable movie. Lots of gore galore in this flick, but the film moves in a dreadfully excruciating pace...
